So where have I been is what you would like to know… I have been writing and creating up a storm! I am nearing completion on my next class for Get It Scrapped called Copic Coloring. It is a class made up of 10 lessons, with 1o+ images for you to color along with me on! One of the exciting things to me on this class is I have 3 amazing artists sharing their art work with the whole class as well! Michelle Perkett of Michelle Perkett Design Studio, Tammy Thompson of A Day For Dasies and Christy Croll of Tiddly Inks have all donated digital stamps for the class to color! I am so excited to share their art work and lots of my own as well! Any way thought I would give you a quick sneak peek at some of the results đŸ™‚

On a much more personal note. Happy Birthday to the man in the top sneak! Happy B-Day John, hope you have a not too crazy day at work. I am so glad you are my partner in life! I am expecting you to have a whole heck of a lot more of these birthdays! I love you!

Hugs all and happy coloring and scrapping!

Hop Hop Hop!

So sorry this is late going up!!!!
Happy Easter Hopping to you all! And welcome to my blog. If you are visiting for the first time as part of the Easter hop I hope you will come back and visit again sometime soon.

The image I chose to play with is Michelle Perkett’s Oh Happy Spring Digital Stamp. And instead of doing a single card or layout I colored 8 of these little guys to use in a treasure hunt, or should I say basket hunt, next weekend.

Instead of the Easter Bunny leaving a basket out for my girls to find our Easter Bunny likes to send them on a wild goose chase looking for clues in various spots around the house to find their hidden basket. Sara and Lori will each have 4 sneaky bunnies to find in order to track down their Easter goodies this year and each bunny will have a clue on the back to find the next.

The bunnies were colored with Copic markers and I added Stickles and a pom pom tail to each. The white bunny uses C1 and the blender, the caramel bunny is Y23, Y26 and Y28, the gray bunny is C1, C3, C5, C7 and the chocolate bunny is E35, E37 and E29. All the bunnies have R20 for their noses and inner ear. Lori’s bunnies have B05 for their bow and B66 for the butterfly. Sara’s bunnies have RV55 for the bow and RV19 for the butterflies.

If you started your hop at Michelle Perkett’s personal blog you are only at stop three so better get to hoppin’! Lots of amazing art yet to see! Here is a list of all the stops to keep you moving along your way.

So I have doubled up on this last challenge. I did this layout to complete a challenge over at A Day For Daisies and also to complete an image for iCopic’s design team call. The image is from A Day For Daisies and they were wishing for stitching on a project so all the butterfly trails are hand sewn in silver thread. iCopic is looking for an image using pink.

The colors I used are R20, R22, blender (dress), Y23, Y26, E35, E37 (hair), YR000, YR01 (skin), B60, B66, B69, Y19, YG13 (pansies), B0000, B00, and blender (sky).

As an FYI there is a fun Easter Blog Hop coming up at the Michelle Perkett Blog. I will be hopping along and other’s as well. If you are a crafter or Copic lover you might have to come take a peek!

On a family note we are all doing well. Lori is fighting a bit of a cold which she has passed on to me. Sara did a big presentation at school today and both John and I got to go. Big surprise she is quite the little actress. I have got lots of activities getting lines up for summer, hard to belive that that is right around the corner. And the weather has warmed again for a couple days. Which would be even nicer if the wind was not strong enough to knock you off your feet :-). All in all life is pretty sweet!

Hugs all!

One more challenge for the ladies at Michelle Perkett Challenge Blog. I just so love her images. It has been fun exploring all the digital artists out there! I have some favorites these days and will be sharing a few of them in an upcoming class! Which leads me to the fact that I might have to miss out on a couple challenges in order to get the class together. But I sure do love playing along when I can, and I will be back at it as soon as I get my class written. I have one more challenge I just might HAVE to do this weekend or next week but we shall see.

I have to go pick up my girl and then off to a late night Mom’s movie night. Look at me going out on a weeknight :-).
Hugs all!
